On Saturday, September 13, 2014, Black Female Photographers, LLC held its 3rd annual photo walk in 14 cities across the country. NBFPD is a time for photographers of all walks of life to come together for networking, mentoring, learning and good old fashioned fun. Photographers of all genders, races and skill level were invited to walk as members of BFP strive to grow working relationships across the board.

 

 

 

 

 

I serve as BFP's Regional Officer for the Washington, DC metropolitan area and I've planned and organized each walk over the last three years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year I chose to walk the east loop of the Downtown Heritage Trail.

It was a rather gloomy day. The forecast called for showers and it was tough trying to pinpoint when the rain would actually start.

But we took our chances and walked anyway!

And we got some pretty good shots, if I do say so myself!

Washington, DC is more than just national monuments. Though it's very rich in history, it's also teeming with pop culture. There's really quite a lot to see.

But not all of the sites will send you home with pleasant memories.

As with any metropolitan area, DC has its share of those in need. Souls that are seemingly lost and forgotten but who are truly alive and full of spirit.

A few hours into the walk we stopped at The Greene Turtle to "chew & chat". We exchanged stories, ideas, plans, dreams, aspirations and of course business information so we can keep in touch. The group planned to continue walking after lunch but the skys opened up and we were forced to call it a day a bit early.

 

 

 

 

 

DC's diverse culture is one of its best features. The city is full of people from all walks of life. Most are as friendly as can be! He stopped while working at an outdoor cafe to pose for me.

 

 

 

 

 

I really wish the rain would have held off for a little while longer. There was so much more to see and I was really enjoying the time with my fellow photographers. NBFPD2015 can't come quick enough!

It was truly a PLEASURE to spend my day with these folks. Newbies and vets came together to share the common interest of photography and we created memories to last a lifetime (and we have the pictures to prove it!).

We'll see you next year!
